yeah he often does just sit in sites somewhere and waits for perfect moments to get multikills.
Its still not an easy thing to do tho. And for me it actually is hard to decide what player could be 5th. Dupreeh could be a great pick also. But i wouldnt be suprised if hltv would put magisk 5th
what if mibr makes it to finals/semi-finals and cold will prob carry with the highest stats? I mean its possible. Look at their performance at DH. They destroyed Mouz and played pretty good against Astralis despite 16-6 loosing lots of clutches.
If they do get a shitty group and lucky draws they can ez go through semis. Look at Gambit and Immortals lol.
I wouldnt rule cold out of the top10 just yet. MiBR from tier10 to tier2 real quick now. And no i dont support MiBR, I actually despise their fanbase of toxic brazilians yet im brazilians as well.
i think despite this year he already is in top 10. Even tho in some of the tournaments they did bad, they still did get top8's and coldzera was still playing overall amazingly. But sadly i dont think he has a chance to get top 5.
So? Scream,JW,shox,snax,f0rest etc are also some of the really skilled players in CSGO. But none of them are in top 20 too. You can have all the skill but if you don't perform in big events, you cannot be considered as a top player
They attended far more T1 tournaments than BIG this year and same as that of NRG,North. But BIG,North and NRG reached top 2 in those big events.
SS never even qualified for playoffs in any of 4 events they gone to and Xantares was terrible in all events except ESL BH.
They are just overrated because of their online play and performance on small events.
Also to be considered top 5 you need mvps and evps in the tournament along with very high rating.
Even Guardian and Dupreeh who have big event MVPs and multiple EVPS are not even considered top 5. Tarik and Flusha who have Major and Katowice MVPs are not even in top 20 now.
Xantares neither have ratings or evps. He will be lucky, if he get top 50 this year.
He is not even top 45 in big event ratings. Now consider evps other have got,he is not top 50.
